How We Work

Open LOI Global Health Grants



We accept letters of inquiry (LOI) for grants in our Global Health initiatives. These include:

Getting Started
Please follow these instructions carefully when submitting an LOI to the Global Health program. Note: Due to tax, legal, and reporting issues, we require that all letters of inquiry be submitted in English.

Step 1: Download the LOI Instructions
The LOI Instructions explain the content behind the questions in the LOI Application Form. It includes a description of how we would like you to describe your proposed project; general information regarding our perspective on Global Access, data sharing, and publication; and a link to our indirect cost policy.

Review Process
Once you've submitted your LOI, you will receive a confirmation that we have received it. Your LOI will be reviewed and you should generally receive a decision regarding whether it has been accepted within ten to twelve weeks of receipt of your application. Global Health program letters of inquiry are reviewed on a continuous basis throughout the year.
